SwitHeart chronicles the artwork of TV icon Loretta Swit, a true champion of the animal kingdom. Watercolorist, award-winning animal activist and actress, Ms. Swit is renowned for her starring role on TV s most honored series, M*A*S*H, for which she won two EMMYs and worldwide acclaim.
What many fans may not know about the multi-talented thespian is that Ms. Swit has been an artist from age six. SwitHeart documents her animal portraits along with descriptive anecdotes about each and her extensive philanthropic work. Ms. Swit said, "I am thrilled to see my passion for animals and my passion for art merge in a book that will help benefit and protect the animals on our planet."
SwitHeart includes 65 full-color paintings and drawings, as well as 22 photographs. Proceeds from the book will be donated to charities and programs that are as dedicated, as Ms. Swit is, to ending animal suffering and cruelty.
